Construction Seminar: Differing Site Conditions: A Builder's Greatest Risk, March 26, 2015
When a contractor encounters a physical condition differing significantly from what was expected when bidding, the contractor’s cost may increase to a point at which the bid price is undermined and the project cannot be completed within the contract period. The contractor generally bears the risk that contract performance will be more difficult or expensive than anticipated. Differing site conditions clauses and other significant exceptions to this rule, however, can shift the risk of unanticipated conditions onto the owner. Not surprisingly, contractors and owners often fight over which of them is responsible for the large claims for unanticipated site conditions that frequently occur.
Join Bob Huber on March 26 live from our Minneapolis office when he will discuss a contractor’s right to extra money and time for differing site conditions when the contract contains a remedy-granting clause and when it does not.
The seminar will be video-conferenced to our Kansas City, Denver and Washington, DC offices. Stinson Leonard Street attorneys will be on-hand, in each office, to answer questions or direct them to Bob Huber.
